AliSaidAbuGhannamApril 24, 2015: Ali Mohammad Abu Ghannam, 16, Was killed by Israeli soldiers near the Zaim military roadblock, east of  Jerusalem.

He was walking with a young woman from his family when the soldiers uttered vulgar words towards the woman; a scuffle broke out before the soldiers shot him dead, alleging that he attempted to stab them.

The Israeli army refused to hand the body of the slain Palestinian to the Red Crescent ambulance that arrived on the scene, and took it to an unknown destination.

Israeli Ynet News quoted a police statement alleging that one of the soldiers managed to hold the Palestinian, “but he continued to run towards the soldiers,” and they shot him dead.
